The Dark Stag Folding Kamisori razor is a highly requested variation on one of our flagship products. Now finished in Black due to popular demand. Featuring exactly the same great shave and rapid blade change mechanism that is still making the original Kamisori so well known amongst the barber community, but now featuring a folding design for greater portability and a slightly different take on style. Brand new and unique to Dark Stag, this straight handled folding Kamisori razor uses regular double edge razor blades meaning you can choose your favourite brand.  With one edge used per client this provides the most cost effective route to a perfect shave. The spring mounted one touch blade holding mechanism can be opened easily for cleaning and disinfecting. This model offers 1mm of blade clearance. Changing the blade takes 2 seconds: pinch the head to drop out the used blade and pop in the replacement.

  • Uses half a standard double edge blades – fantastic economy
  • Perfectly balanced
  • Supplied with leather pouch
  • Head folds into the handle when not in use
  • 1mm blade exposure

What is a Kamisori?

What is a Kamisori Razor exactly? The Kamisori dates back to more than eight hundred years ago. Used by Buddhist monks to shave their heads, a symbol of the Buddhist faith. The most glaringly obvious difference between eastern razors and western razors is the lack of scales (handle) for the blade to fold into. This can make storing them and their portability a bit of an issue – hence the high-quality leather pouch we supply with every Kamisori we sell. The blade of a Kamisori is traditionally also shorter; an authentic example never exceeds two inches. Uniquely shaped for more effective sharpening.

As the Japanese borders gradually opened to the rest of the world, western-style razors were introduced to the masses. This has not majorly impacted the sale of razors there though… the Kamisori is still the most preferred shaving tool in Japan today.
